    Default Hello

    I'm Rajeev from Mumbai, India and have been a dormant audiophile for almost 40 years now, since age 15 or so.

    About 4 years ago I mentioned my to my wife that my colleague in New Delhi had bought himself a new BMW 5 series automobile in which he took me for a no holds barred joyride. I am reasonably frugal about these things, and the kids were almost through college, and so wife asked me a few days later if I would like to buy myself one, to which I responded saying there's no point, considering the Mumbai traffic and roads and the fact that, being an airline pilot, I didn't get that much time in Mumbai. My current VW has 9000km on the odo in 2 years.

    I did say that if I could have a corner of the house to myself and spend 10 to 20% of the BMW budget on HiFi audio equipment, I'd be a happy bunny for life. She's not so sure now if she really wanted me to be that happy.

    So happy bunny I am, but whoever said bunnies a immune from upgraditis . . . ?

    Presently listening to:
    Sources - Vortexbox appliance (Small Green Computer), Rega Planar 3/RB300/Denon DL103R
    Heed Quasar phono stage with power supply
    NAIM SuperUniti
    Totem Model One Signature speakers + Totem Storm sub

    Previous stuff now in son's bedroom (this was all bought second hand/used except for the DAC):
    NAIM NAC32-5/NAP140
    Linn Kaber speakers
    Source - MacBook Pro + Meridian Explorer USB DAC

    Currrently DIYing -
    Lenco L78 a-la Jean Nantais/Troels
    Audiomods arm kit
    Troels Gravesen SBA10 speakers,
    which I hope should propel me into the stratosphere minus the jet engines.

    Happy also to be part of this forum. I came in search of info on building the Audiomods arm kit.

    Hi Rajeev. Welcome to AOS.

    Your DIY ideas sound interesting. Keep us informed as to how that all progresses. We have a Gallery section if you'd like to feature what you're doing. I'm sure it would be of interest.

    Why not start a thread in the Analogue Arts section regarding the Audiomods build and ask any questions you may have. I'm sure you'd get loads of replies.

    Feel free to join in any chat that appeals to you, there's plenty going on.


    Enjoy the forum,
    Geoff.

    Thank you Geoff and Grant,

    I once found a thread by Alan Towell, aka 337alant regarding the Audiomods build - that's what brought me back to this forum. His posts on his build experience of the Audiomods are hard to beat, nevertheless I'll try and supplement them best possible with the angle of the less experienced DIYer.

    Regards.
